I'm getting a kick out of Golden Gun in Rainbow Six Siege

Ubisost has set live its new Arcade Mode playlist in Rainbow Six Siege, which will bring fun rotational modes with wild 'n' wacky rulesets to the typically straight-laced shooter. The first mode is "Golden Gun", and runs from March 19 until March 23.

For those of you not well-worn in the ways of the first-person-shooter, Golden Gun was a popular multiplayer mode in N64 classic Goldeneye 007. In Golden Gun, players carried the titular weapon - as wielded by Francisco Scaramanga in one of the very worst Bond movies - and battled it out in a "one-hit-kills" deathmatch scenario.

This classic mode translates surprisingly well to Siege. Two teams of five players pick from a stripped down selection of Attackers and Defenders, before engaging in lightning-fast Best-of-Three sets on the newly reworked Oregon map. The Golden Gun Deagle auto-reloads after each shot and can punch a meaty hole into dry-walls. Most importantly, the rag-doll physics have been ramped up, to raise a smile from time-to-time.
